|A picture from my birthday party...I don't know how I managed to score this definition on the perfect day!|
|A picture I took before going out for a bowling party. This braid out is partially damp but lasted the night.|
I was not doing two things in my current braid outs that I did in the past:
1) I was not sealing my ends. This would result in very huge dried out frizz ball looking ends (in my opinion).
2) I was doing individual braids, rather than "cornrows". For some reason, cornrows make my braid outs come out neater and more uniform, so to speak.
So through sealing my ends and using cornrows, rather than individual braids, I got these results instead:
This is not fluffed out, even fluffed out I'm sure this would have had a lot more definition and hold than my braid outs as of late. Results like these keep my hands away from the direction of the flat iron.
